Southern Norway Agder KRISTIANSAND

Bragdøya island

  • Bragdøya, Kristiansand
  •  /  km From You

Bragdøya is an island in Kristiansand municipality, just outside of the city centre.

Bragdøya in Kristiansand is a 0.7-square-kilometre (0.27 sq mi) island in the archipelago of Kristiansand, just south of the city centre.

The island is surrounded by the smaller islands of Svensholmen and Langøya to the north (across the narrow Bragdøyrenna strait) and the island of Hestehaue to the southeast. The populated island of Andøya lies to the southwest.

Bragdøya has been owned by the municipality of Kristiansand since 1969 when they bought it with a government grant as a public open space. It was purchased with the requirement that the islands would be a recreational space for the city. During the summer, the island is used as grazing land for sheep.

Bragdøya Kystlag, a voluntary association which aims to preserve local maritime culture along the coast, is now the owner of the warehouse complex named Bragdøya Coastal Heritage Centre. There are organized boat transport to the island, the whole year, from Lumber in Vågsbygd.

There is also a summer sightseeing boat from the city centre of Kristiansand during the Norwegian school holidays which makes a round trip of Bragdøya and several other islands.
